Following an initial setup at London Heathrow in October, ESP Global Services is supporting additional Covid testing sites across UK airports and is now looking at additional expansion to various transport hubs and event locations.
Reading, UK, Feb-21
ESP Global Services – a leading provider of IT support services across the globe – has successfully supported the set up and support of dedicated COVID testing facilities at several major UK airports. The testing facilities are likely to play a crucial role in ensuring that travel is safe, and that people can move between countries.
Beginning in October, ESP helped facilitate the quick set up of testing sites in multiple terminals at London Heathrow, where ESP has had dedicated IT engineers at Heathrow for 28 years.
Since the installation at Heathrow, Covid testing sites have been stood up at London Stansted, London City, East Midlands and Manchester airports, and ESP assisted with the IT support for each of these sites.
Testing facilities are an integral contribution to the return to safe and routine air travel as they minimise the opportunities for infected people to travel and for the virus to spread – prospective passengers know within hours if they test positive for the virus.
Work is now underway to replicate these testing sites at other transport hubs, as well as event venues such as the O2 in London.
“The expansion of vital Covid testing to new airports and sites is an encouraging development,” Ross Holliday, Sales Director as ESP, says.
“Transport hubs and venues are working hard to implement initiatives that guarantee the safety of customers and staff, while also contributing to the recovery of the travel and live events industries.”
